Close your eyes. Let the soothing sound of that voice wash over you and carry you to the time before Putin took over and gave the Residency to his pervert. His speech starts at minute 29, so click ahead. I will say no more until the video is done.

I watched this yesterday....and was overcome with emotion.

Gawd, I miss him, and for what he stands for...such a remarkable, kind and worthy elocutionist, who means what he says, and does what he said.

And that was Illinois. Yesterday. Today he is in California, doing more of it. But the live stream seems to be on Facebook for now.

And, while it is getting some very nutty (apologies to peanuts and tree nuts) responses from many conservatives, at least one welcomed it.

Here's another take on it vis-a-vis the conservative position.

He remains a stellar orator--yet many transcripts over the years left much to be desired when it came to discerning policy and other positions.

He would have done a better job if the Rethuglican-dominated Congress hadn't thwarted him so.

Get your behinds to the polls and VOTE!

What a real pleasure to watch and totally enjoy Obama's speech. Nothing at all like watching the current idiot that takes us into a negative direction each and every time he speaks or just to see his orange head.
Obama never spoke to us in negative ways, he made us feel like we were important people.
I sure miss him not being in office any longer. I pray that these people listen to what he speaks and gets out there to vote and change the direction of our country.
Thanks TomCat

Obama spoke at the University of Illinois because he received an award from their Institute and Government Affairs that honours the integrity and high ethical standards that have guided his lifetime of public service. His speech made it clear again why he got this award.

Of course there couldn’t be a better background to contrast himself with than the current administration. So sad to see almost all Obama worked for destroyed by hateful racists who can’t live with someone trying to do good for the country and who is still better liked than they are no matter what they say.

When asked if he had listened to Obama's speech, Diaper Don replied that he had it on but he fell asleep. Well it is no wonder. Obama spoke at an adult level, a level way above Diaper Don's intellectual level! (and I won't even talk about his emotional level!)

Obama used the word "Trump" about three times, the rest of the time mentioning Republicans --- "Trump is just a symptom of what has been going on for decades." Very similar to what was said earlier here --- Trump is the tumour but Republicans are the cancer. I am certain that as time goes on, Diaper Don, narcissist that he is, will see this as a personal attack. But in truth, it was a civics lesson and an encouragement to stay engaged and vote.

A breath of fresh air indeed!!!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Integrity comes to mind.

He was undone by an impotent party, inept and dysfunctional Congress and thwarted by complacent constituents who let him flap in the winds of bigotry. The Democratic party is still impotent, Congress is still inept, dysfunctional, lacking courage and dominated by bigoted bullies.

Hope lies in a bold, invigorated, engaged voting constituency that will show its teeth and turn out at the polls not afraid to demand performance from its representatives in government. We're paying and not getting enough for the huge sums of money we spend. Corporations can't vote.

We'll clear the swamp, "You're fired" comes to mind. Sound familiar?
